Autumn has Arrived

The cooler weather here – highs in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s – has announced the arrival of autumn.  And with it come the beautiful fall colors. 

The leaves on the vine maples have begun to turn red and orange.  

The leaves are falling and cover our loop road.

All around we see the signs of fall.  It is such a change for us to have four distinct seasons.  

The cool air is wonderfully crisp and clean.  The leaves are beautiful, it is hard to resist taking lots of pictures. 

The bracken ferns are turning brown and the clouds are low on the mountains.

 

The animals know it is time to prepare for winter.  Simon and Theodore are busy scooping up the birdseed that the helpful jays have scattered everywhere.   

It is a beautiful time of year here and we are enjoying it.

    Beautiful photos. Things are changing here as well, although the temperature is supposed to be in the 90’s today, so I think I am going to go to the falls for one last swim.
